Work and personal projects from the last 2 years.
The Tyger byAlbionics
Scoreboard animation created for Gander Mountain and their St. Paul Saints minor league baseball affiliation.
The video is used to announce their walk promotion, when a Saints player draws a walk. The assets were provided by Adam Danielson, and then I animated the video.
Be The Jake, a series of six videos that I directed for State Farm. They were designed to promote the Jake from State Farm® Halloween Costume that you could purchase at http://neighborgear.com/
Rigged/animated all the characters using Duik.
During a recent #mochat twitter discussion on self promotion, I coined the concept of “Mograph Selfie”. Which I descibed as a way for motion graphic designers/animators to showcase their talent through the medium they work in.
It is my hope to create a place for people to express themselves through the art they love and to show their face on the other side of the screen.

A series of King of the Nerd tv show promos
10 second bumper for Halloween that aired on TBS to promote Snickers
I designed the character, created the skeleton rig, and animated the spot. TBS was in charge of all the text, music, and background elements.
A daily animated snowflake GIF advent Calendar, creating a series of snowflakes for 24 straight days.
I animated Snapfish's New Year message, using Cinema 4D and After Effects.
2011 MFA Thesis Animated Short Film, 2D animation
A sneaky thief gets a crash course in Fine Art, one eventful night in the art museum.
Selected for the 36th Cleveland International Film Festival 2012
End credits for Carolyn Depp's MFA thesis film Posthaste in 2015.
I worked with Carolyn on the concept/and execution of the credit sequence.
Since her film was stop motion. I wanted to create a sequence that kept the texture like feel of her film.
I came up with the concept of using mail, to represent a different role in the film, then tried to tie elements of that role to the visuals.
Then adding transitions between each element so that it carried into the next person, so it wasn't just a hard cut.
